You are never too far away from a Chamber Member. If you have a business in Bideford, Westward Ho!, Northam or Appledore and wish to find out more about joining, just give them a call.
Bideford and District Chamber of Commerce meet on the first Tuesday of each month. Meetings are held at ‘Next Door’ to Crabby Dicks in Cooper Street at 6.15pm. Some months we have guest speakers who come to talk about issues that concern trading in Bideford and surrounding areas.
Meetings are rarely dull, and this is reflected in the fact that membership has grown and is steadily increasing.
Everyone who joins has a chance to put forward their views on current trading trends. We have a membership benefits package with members’ offers available.

USE THE INDEPENDENTS FOR YOUR GIFT IDEAS
Bideford has a wealth of independent shops where there are some fabulous gift ideas and because they are not the usual chains, the personal service you receive is second to none. And we must not forget the small shops in our neighbouring villages, Westward Ho!, Appledore and Northam. Supporting local businesses keeps our town and villages alive and thriving. Use them or lose them.
